Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship-CIE was established in 2014 as per direction of Govt. of India to focus on innovation and skill- oriented education in Govt. funded universities.
Centre for Innovation & Entrepreneurship has two units:-
- Livelihood Business Incubation Centre
- Design Innovation Centre
Livelihood Business Incubator (LBI)
Activities of LBI
Livelihood Business Incubation Centre – LBI: -
The Livelihood Business Incubation Centre was established with the funding of MSME in 2016. The basic objective of this incubator is to provide skill based training to the school drop outs and the un-employed youth especially from under privileged and weaker sections of the society. This unit is running skilled based training programs “Entrepreneurship Development Program – EDP” of 8 weeks duration as MSME guidelines. These programs are aimed at self employment generation (ATMA NIRBHAR BHARAT) among aspiring livelihood business entrepreneurs. The units are being run under A Scheme for Promoting Innovation; Rural Industry & Entrepreneurship (ASPIRE) of the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises throughout the country. At this incubator unit, the skill based training is being provided in the following area.
- Computer Hardware and Networking
- Tailoring and Embroidery Training
- Beautician Training
- PET Bottle Manufacturing and Drinking Water Packaging
- Bakery Products Manufacturing
- Spices Grinding and Packaging
- Paper Cup/Glass/Plates manufacturing
- Printing and designing
During last two years, 15 Batches (around ~328 students) have been successfully completed the training and are happily earning their livelihood.
Since last one year, LBI has also started to sale its products in the University for generating revenue so that this may be utilized for the innovation of regular university students. It has launched successfully some of the products such as JMI Jal (packaged drinking water),
JMI Spices (packed spices), JMI Bakers (packaged bakery products) after getting the proper certification from Govt. of India. The products are being sold in the university through our three outlets.
a) Near University Polytechnic
b) Near Central Library
c) In Faculty of Engineering & Technology
Design Innovation Center (DIC)
Activities of DIC
Design Innovation Centre – DIC:-
The Design Innovation Centre at Jamia Millia Islamia was established through MHRD, Govt. of India, through Cluster Innovation Center, University of Delhi, Delhi. Design Innovation Program was sanctioned University of Delhi in 2015, where JMI was one of the spokes.
The Brief details of the Innovative projects under DIC are:-
During last three years, there have been many innovative programs, talks and interactions. The Centre has also represented the university at the “Festival of Innovators” at Rashtrapati Bhawan during last two years and the innovative projects displayed there, were appreciated by the visiting team. Some of important innovative projects of our students, which have been appreciated, are as follows;
Pre Electric Car
This project was completed by the students of university polytechnic. Team leader of this project Mr. Mohammad Ameer was selected by Frisson Motor Works, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA as Battery Management System Engineer on an annual salary package of Rs.70 Lakh per annum (approximately) on the basis of this project. This was highest salary package for any Diploma Engineering student of the varsity since its inception. This project got wide media coverage.
This project was completed by a team led by Mr. Mohd. Kashif, student of B.Tech., Final Semester. They presented this project in E-Antra competition funded by MHRD at National Level competition held at IIT, Mumbai and were they placed at 1st position in the Transporter Bot Section Competition. Transporter Boat was basically a robot, which will bring automation in transporting the crops to market in a timely manner, as they stay fresh only for a short duration. The aim of this project is to build a prototype of the bot that can put up specific crop’s crate and put it in a specific disposition zone.
IOT based fuel monitoring system
The project was developed by a team of B. Tech. (Mechanical Engineering) students. Their product will maximize benefit to an organization by reducing siphoning, pilferage, cheating in fuel monitoring and will also provide the proper record. It will also provide data with it’s graphical analysis to an organization about their vehicles & machines over a period of time on App or Web.
This project was completed by a team of B. Tech. (Electronics & Communications Engineering) students. The project was based on a Modular quad copter with limited sensors to visualize an entire building or an area without human interaction in a GPS denied environment. It will enable the multipurpose use of the drone and will also reduce repair cost. Making the drone Autonomous will reduce the human error and effort.
